McCain closes in on Obama in 4 battleground states

Republican John McCain has closed in on Democrat Barack Obama in four battleground states, according to the latest Quinnipiac poll. Colorado, Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin show gains by John McCain.

Quinnipiac reported current and previous results:
Sen. McCain has picked up support in almost every group in every state, especially among independent voters and men voters. The Republican now leads Obama among independent voters in Michigan and Minnesota. Overall results show:

- Colorado: McCain is up by a nose 46 - 44 percent, compared to a 49 - 44 percent Obama lead June 26;
- Michigan: Obama tops McCain 46 - 42 percent, compared to a 48 - 42 percent lead last time;
- Minnesota: Obama edges ahead 46 - 44 percent, compared to a 54 - 37 percent Obama lead;
- Wisconsin: Obama leads McCain 50 - 39 percent, compared to 52 - 39 percent.
We are still in summer polls ... most Americans are not paying that much attention yet to the fall campaigns. It will be interesting to see how these numbers change over the next weeks but especially after the Republican Convention in September.

I am so glad to hear that McCain is narrowing the race in these states. Lets hope after people realize that Obama is all hype that they will start backing mccain. I think it will be obvious when they start having debates and town hall meetings that Mccain will shine. That is what happened to Hillary Clinton people just realized that the guy dosen't know what he is talking about. Check out my blog on Obama
